Aug. 06, 2021

The flexible film is widely used in various packaging industries

And compared with several traditional packaging alternatives, flexible film packaging is more environmentally friendly and more value-for-money. As a result, the use of flexible films is growing across almost every industry. As a supplier of PLA flexible film, I will introduce you to the advantages of flexible film in the packaging industry.

Flexible film packaging can be customized 

Flexible packaging film is touted because it can be customized according to the details of the packaged product. Regardless of the shape, size or visual requirements, this solution allows you to flexibly customize your packaging according to your unique specifications and market goals.

Custom elements have also expanded from materials to visual attributes, including clarity, gloss, and printability. It allows you to truly showcase your products and brand in an eye-catching way. You can print high-quality graphics in various colors and designs, package your products with creativity and style, or include important information directly on the packaging.

Flexible film packaging has a wide range of uses

The design of flexible packaging film considers many product requirements and realities.

There are some options that prioritize durability and tear resistance, safe distribution and storage, freshness and food safety, and protection from environmental factors such as temperature, light, moisture, and gas. The flexible film helps to extend the shelf life of perishable items and can hide the smell of the package contents.

Flexible film packaging can reduce production costs

Since the flexible film can be customized according to the specific size of your product, there is no need to use more than absolutely necessary materials. By using high-quality film, you can usually gradually eliminate the need for additional packaging components such as corrugated trays and the corresponding costs. In addition, the cost of implementing flexible packaging films, from materials to production costs, is significantly lower than that of plastic or glass containers. Due to its light weight, flexible packaging films are more affordable for domestic and international transportation. As new technologies continue to emerge, you can further reduce packaging costs by shrinking specifications or choosing smaller width films.

PLA Flexible Film Characteristics

Polylactide (polylactide, polylactic acid, abbreviated as PLA), is extruded into a film, also known as polylactic acid film or PLA film. PLA flexible film is made from corn, wheat, cassava and other starch-containing organisms as the initial raw material, which is obtained by enzymatic decomposition Glucose is then fermented by acid bacteria to become lactic acid, and finally undergoes compounding to obtain biodegradable thermoplastic polyester. Polylactic acid has good biocompatibility, environmental safety, no toxicity, good mechanical properties, light transparency, and processing properties. It can be used for various packaging materials such as mulching film, food packaging bags, medicines, etc.

If the PLA flexible film is to be discarded, it will be decomposed by light and biological action to become carbon dioxide and water, which plays an important role in eliminating white pollution, protecting the environment and natural ecological balance.

What is more, the manufacturing and transportation of flexible packaging film requires less energy, and it generates fewer greenhouse gases during the process of entering the market.
